I have smoked for nearly 38 years. I'm embarrassed to admit this. I fact, I have tried to not think about how long I have smoked. I need to quit. I survived breast cancer and should have quit then. Now I'm starting the constant disgusting cough with phlegm. Its time. I'm scared because I enjoy smoking. Always have. My triggers will be coffee, love my first smoke of the day with fresh coffee. I am...
This my second go at trying to quit smoking again, and I'm trying to learn how and what I can do to distract myself any tips

Started Nicotex patch today. Didnt feel craving for the first half of the day but bit itchy now:( I have tried cold turkey a few times but it didnt last so hoping the patch with help.

After ending up in hospital diagnosed with PVD(clotted artery in groin)... that was enough for me to wake up and smell the roses..... well anything other than cigarettes really!!!!
Would you believe 5 years and 9 months ago when I quit, a carton of Dunhill cost $196. Went to the supermarket today where I used to make that weekly "deposit" into their coffers and discovered now the same costs $376, nearly double when I enquired at the cigarette counter. I visit once a year just to check. That is more than a lot of monthly mortgage payments. So glad I bit the bullet when I did...
I have successfully completed 6 months without any puff. I recommend homeopathic medicine like Avena Sateva (Dr Rickweg or better & Plantago drop (Any good brand). they don't have any side effect specially for those people who have allergy from allopathic medicines . Good luck guys, keep fighting for a healthy life..
